Our experts at Rogers Jewelry Co. have put together a guide to everything you need to know about engraving.
WHY ENGRAVE JEWELRY AND WATCHES?
Engraving allows one to bring added personalization to their most sentimental and monetarily valuable accessories. These etchings serve a myriad of particular purposes. Some choose to engrave their name or initials on the piece to remind them of its original owner as it is passed down through the family. One may also choose to have a gift for a romantic partner engraved with a special message that communicates your affection or an inside joke that will make them giggle each time they see it. Whatever the reason or the message, engravings are beautiful and long-lasting, giving a new emotional dimension to the piece.
BEST ITEMS TO HAVE ENGRAVED
Some items are better for engraving than others. First, you'll want to pick a piece forged in high-quality materials, as these will respond better to the carving and last longer. Engraving can be costly, and you'll want to choose a piece you'll have for a long time rather than a less durable, less valuable piece. Engravings are special, so make sure the jewelry is appropriate. Next, the best engraving pieces are those with large, flat, unadorned surfaces. Timepieces with plain backs, wedding bands, pendant necklaces, or bracelets with large charms or bars are perfect choices for engraving.
